Alota Sweet Ballerina Bug/tutorial on Faux handmade Dpaper

This card was designed for todays TLC Faux Handmade backgrounds. On my card I used this darling Sweeet Ballerina Bug from Alota Rubber Stamps

Here is a mini Tutorial on how I did my background.
first I used Paint Dabbers. (they said toilet paper) I used that too, but at the end of each step!

First I dabbed on blue, after it was dabbed on I took toilet paper and dabbed a little just to blend it down :)


Next I dabbed on pink. Some thing with the toilet paper to blend it down.
Last I dabbed on Pearl. You can see it in this picture below, and of course I just had to make two :)

This technique is simple and fast, dont let the fact that you are working with paints discourage you from try'n this. Honestly this card took less that 30 minutes to make. Of course the image was already colored and waiting:) LOL


Here my card is all done! I did add a feather , flowers, gems, and ribbon!!!!
Thank you for looking and have a wonderful day!!!



Stamps can be found here at Alota Rubber Stamps
